Hockey / Sports Camp August 19 – 23 – Goalies
Each camp offers two active ice times designed to enhance and define the skills needed to succeed. The participants begin with power skills and power skating (full ice continuous movement patterns) and then rotate in small balanced groups through stations working on individual skills such as shooting, passing, dekes, defending and stick handling. Each session has a specific focus and progression over the course of the week. In later sessions we introduce individual and team tactics. The final component of each session is intense small ice games. This training format keeps everyone active throughout, thereby maximizing skill development time.
One distinguishing plus for Skills Plus Hockey Camps is the leadership on the ice and off the ice. Eric Calder (On-Ice Head Instructor and Camp Organizer) has 19 plus years of on ice teaching experience at Skills Plus Hockey Camps, has his highest level of Coaching issued by Hockey Canada and has learned a lot with 1000’s of on-ice practical teaching hours. Off-ice the group leaders are most of time trained teachers with the Ontario School Board and who have been teaching camps at Skills Plus Hockey for many years now. I encourage you to go to the bio page and have a look. This is the biggest distinguishing feature that separates Skills Plus Hockey from other hockey camps in the area.Goalies receive 20-minutes of specialized training at the start of each ice time with the goalie instructor(s).
The off-ice activities are designed to combine fun and fitness through a variety of sporting activities. The hockey/soccer camp provides the unique opportunity to receive daily professional instruction in two sports. The Rep level and specialty camps place a more intense focus on hockey-related fitness with the use of the Quick Feet dryland program to enhance core strength and the aerobic and anaerobic base needed to perform at a competitive level. The All Level
Camps will also experience a Quick Feet program workout.
As well, at the full day camps we go swimming twice during the week. We go to either the Harry Class Pool. Trips to swimming are by School bus. The swims are all very tightly monitored with the swimming pool staff and camp instructors. Both the city of Kitchener and Waterloo have strict guidelines to follow at swims. Parents are always welcome to meet us at the pool to volunteer if they’d like. Moreover please note there’s a yoga session each week. The Waterloo Region sessions will be instructed by Jayne Hembruff (owner of Innovative Wellness – www.innovativewellness.ca).
Back again will be Eric’s jam session. I love to play guitar, harmonica and sing in my spare time. I used to play and perform in bars in Europe when I was playing pro hockey. I’ve recently gotten back into playing and last year I sang a song to all the groups that attended camp. I’ve had a lot of positive comments from attendees and look forward to making it part of every day camp.
All summer camps are co-ed (except August 8-11 Girls Camp), with participants divided into sub-groups according to ability. The structure of the All Levels camps challenges both rep and house league players. Skills Plus Hockey Inc. reserves the right to re-align the camp age categories due to variations in camps demand.
Late pick-up is available upon request. Please note you are required to accompany your child to the assigned dressing rooms each morning for drop off with the group instructor(s). As well at the end of the day you’re required to return to the dressing to pick up your child. There’s leniency to this camp policy with campers who are twelve years of age and older….upon clarifying with the group leader.
